DraftKings Fantasy Soccer: Werder Bremen v. Eintracht Frankfurt Showdown Preview

This article is part of our DraftKings Fantasy Soccer series.

Eintracht Frankfurt are +148 favorites (DraftKings Sportsbook) away to Werder Bremen (+175) on Wednesday, with the over 2.5 goals sitting at -136 versus +110 for the under.

The next-highest player (200 minutes minimum) is Florian Kainz at 10.28, and he's only played 1,313 minutes. The reason this is
